The teaching moment here is how grown-ups can cave to prejudice. I'm confident most of the kids, like most Americans, can see Ms. Carbone's failure to lead and will be better citizens for it. Ironically we have Ms. Carbone to thank.

I first climbed St. Regis and the fire tower at around age 9. It became a summer ritual for some in our extended family and I have great memories of finally summitting, then to scale the tower and chat with the ranger stationed there. And then there's the view!
What a great thing that they've taken the initiative to restore these landmarks. It's a great family daytrip since its only an hour and a half hike up. Thanks for the mention Stephen.

Last couple times I went by there after dark the huge sign out by the road was completely dark, and it clearly was open for business. The billboard thing seems like a pretty lame effort when you actually get to see the place.

It's odd that an article about the new SchenCo promo video wherein I commented on local media's demographic bubble went away in 2 days while this one seems to just linger on.

Very sad that this shooting occurred but Chief Balmer's use of the phrase "...at my officers" reveals they still don't get it.

I'm confident sternly worded letters will be forthcoming.

Another view is to let them go home and think it over with those who gave them permission to be racist in the first place.
